Midland Fire Department Receives Community Foundation Grant

December 30, 2015 – The Midland Area Community Foundation’s (MACF) Board of Trustees recently awarded a $15,000 grant to the Midland Fire Department to support the department’s Technical Rescue program and purchase a trailer for rescue equipment.

Over the past two years, the Fire Department has been expanding its capabilities to render aid in the specialized area known as technical rescue, which involves spaces that are higher or lower than normal or areas that could require specialized support to be considered stable. Much of the work involves using ropes and pulleys to gain access to the areas where a victim is located. Much of the equipment is large, and the current repurposed trailer is not of adequate size to safely deliver it to a scene. The plan is to complete the purchase in early to mid-2016.

“We are very grateful to the foundation for their support in our programs, which help us reach people during dangerous situations,” said Chief Chris Coughlin. “Their generous offer will help us provide invaluable emergency service to not only the population of Midland, but to surrounding counties as well.”

The MACF provides philanthropic leadership to strengthen our community by fostering collaboration and giving today and in the future.
